is that this legion of armed volunteers, i believe, asa hutchinson said -- the fantasy is that they are going to somehow avert what we saw as opposed to controlling the stock of semiautomatic weapons. so i think he can change the subject all he wants. we've seen a lot of changing the subject this week. everything blaming from lack of god to feminism, but i think everybody really understands that if a madman has -- if they happen to be legal, then they understand what's really happening here. >> i would like to point out that we are in a family culture that has video games. you know -- >> what? >> i know. it's shocking. i'm about to break some news here. you know, the grand theft auto was created by a company in england. >> they have them in japan too. >> no. >> how many people know their teachers and their teacher's guards well enough to arm all of the -- even if it was -- >> gun violence doesn't always come to school, so if we look at -- >> what? >> if we go by his logic, then we would have to have armed guards at temples and shopping malls, every one of them. now some do. of course, movie t
